Businessman Abhishek Verma and his wife Anca Neacsu were on Thursday remanded in CBI custody till August 21 by a Delhi court after the agency told a court here that their custody was required in the forgery case lodged against them on Union Sports Minister Ajay Maken’s complaint.

Mr. Verma and Ms. Neacsu were produced before the court after expiry of their judicial custody. Both were granted bail on August 8 in a corruption case for allegedly receiving money from a Swiss firm to stall its blacklisting proceedings by the Indian government. But the CBI arrested them on the same day in the forgery case that was also registered on August 8.
